DOT to demolish four buildings downtown

WILMINGTON, NC ( — The N.C. Department of Transportation is demolishing four buildings within Wilmington’s National Register Historic District that were purchased more than six years ago as part of the city’s long-stalled downtown multimodal transportation center.

The low-slung, mostly brick buildings on the north side of Campbell Street between North Third and Fourth streets have fallen into disrepair and have deteriorated to the point that city officials consider them threats to public health and safety.

The DOT received permission from the state Historical Commission in October to remove the buildings.
